Riight now Kylie, there are a lot of members here that are envious of your winter weather. They would welcome some cooler temps with a lot of rain.

I know what you mean. I was in the back yard today doing yard work, while hearing my next door neighbors splashing and frolicking in their swimming pool. It was pretty much killing me. lol

this is only the beginning of a major heat wave and i am reminded that brown-outs occur when it's so hot and everyone has their a/c running--my electricity is fading out every few minutes, knocking out my lights and computer momentarily....

Awright! Power went out for a few seconds, thundering and lightening like crazy, and pouring! Wish I could share!

In spite of the celebrations and holiday coming up, everyone has the weather on their mind. RAIN, RAIN, RAIN. It is desperately needed just about everywhere except for the east coast. I think it is time for a circle of prayer between all of us. And tonight sounds like a good place to start.

I don't care about the brown lawns, and other esthetic problems the lack of rain is causing. What I care about is now lives are being lost due to the fires in Colorado. Homes can be rebuilt. Memories can be kept in ones heart. But how do you replace a life.

We hit 107 here yesterday, and it is predicted to hit 107 again today, which means that it might jump a bit higher.

We went to a friend's house last night for dinner and the house never cooled below 82! It was kind of uncomfortable. It's a freestanding house and I guess that it was still cooling 20 degrees cooler than outside, so it was doing its job. The house has 2 central A/C units. Luckily we live in a townhouse, and it is very easy to heat and cool, we maintained 72 inside all day yesterday, and our system cycled on and off, most people's A/C will run constantly for days to try to keep up.

At 8 a.m. it was already 85F. Humidity is waaaaaay up now and we're bracing for another scorcher.

My brother is considering using his pool to cook pasta the water is so warm. Not even refreshing any more. His landscape timbers are beginning to twist from being so dry.

The local NBC station crew baked cookies on the dashboard of one of their cars yesterday.
